Sponsors and Charity

Partnering Minerva Bath RC

As a voluntary organisation we depend on member contributions and sponsorship. A big thank you to all our sponsors and supporters. Your support enables us to continue to grow our club and encourage more people to join the sport. We have squads competing and training from age 13 to 79 and we are still winning in all categories. There are many ways of becoming a sponsor or helping the club. If you are interested please contact the Chair.

We would also like to thank Helen Glover, GB Rowing Olympic gold medallist at London 2012, for being our patron and showing her support for the club since learning to row here in 2008.

Minerva Bath has a proud and rich history stretching back to 1914 and our origins in Bath Ladies Boat Club. In the 100+ years that have followed we have never stood still and always moved forward.

With the help of Sport England, BANES and many local trust funds and sponsors we have been able to expand our clubs facilities and equipment, including a second boathouse and a shower block so that more people can join the club and enjoy the sport of rowing, socially or competitively.

But we always need more. For instance, our junior squad has increased 3 fold over the last 2 years and the pressure on coaching and equipment is inevitable. We run courses for local charity for disadvantaged children, Mentoring Plus, and are short of the equipment we need to help continue this. We fund as much as we can from our membership fees but equipment and repairs are expensive.

Can you help?
• Sponsor one of our many fundraising events?
• Donate your time to help with an event?
• Just donate some money towards a boat, an indoor rowing machine, riggers, a life jacket, a cox box etc.

Whatever you can do to help – we want to know. So please get in touch with the Chair.
